    Dattebayo – the girl was shot in the head and lost her WHOLE family, she is probably still in shock. Give her a break and don’t judge.

    I cannot fault the chaser for several reasons. First is that they risk their lives daily to give all of us in tornado alley far greater warning times and accuracy. Second, they are most often the first responders, searching for victims and informing paramedics where to come. Third, and tragically, many still do not heed these warnings. This photo could prompt more parents to take a tornado warning more seriously. Unfortunately there remains a “it won’t happen to me” attitude. Next, and I’m sure least on his mind was a paycheck. Most chasers are very concerned citizens, but they do earn their living only from the photos and video they take. As to the comment on Facebook about the inference of hoping for good storm cells to chase – if you follow most any chaser they say this, again – it’s their job and how they earn a living.
    And that job saves lives.

    This is nothing new (at least in GA). One of my children in 1989, at age of barely 3, was prescribed Ritalin. Not all parents reach this place merely due to over-active kids. His symptoms were so extreme & severe, it was obvious something was very wrong. At the time parents did not have the internet to help learn, just dozens of docs. Despite warning bells roaring in my head I gave him one dose only, then never again. I was being told my child who could fluently read & do add. & sub. into triple digits by 3rd b-day was autistic. Every instinct as a mom told me this was wrong. I spent countless Sat. at t/library reading all I could. Finally found an article entitled “The Allergist That Roared” about a Dr. Theron Randolph discussing t/relation between severe allergies & severe hyper-activity & wrote to him. Received a response directing me to a MD/ND immunologist expert in the field. Sure enough my son had VERY severe dust/mold allergies (as well as many others). After 3 mon. on allergy shots & replacing anti-biotics w/homeopathics my sons behavior became MUCH more normal. Also cleaned up his diet & chemical influences in his room (stuff toys/non-natural cleaning prod/plastics, etc) He graduated HS at 15, college at 19 & was at one time the 7th ranked scholastic chess player in our state. Hate to think what t/outcome w/have been had I not trusted my instinct & kept him on psychotropic drugs from age 3. I was scolded by his reg. docs & poss. now c/have had him taken away from

    The only way I can judge Mormonism is by those I’ve met of that faith. For example. I went to Restoring Courage in Israel. The El Al flight was coach, far left side, 3 seats. You’ve never been in a cattle car until you’ve flown coach El Al. I have only a partial bladder. Of course I got the window seat. The couple next to me were Mormons. I’m 5’7 and could not move my legs. The man who was maybe 6’1 gave me his aisle seat, for a 13 hour flight! Not only that but I was alone, this couple ended up on my bus. Every day they watched out for me, checked to make sure I had gotten back on the bus, helped me when I was exhausted, etc. A greater example of Christian charity would be hard to find.
    You’d think a Beck trip would be all cons, or all Mormons. Not so! The back 4 rows of our bus had an atheist couple, a Catholic couple, the Mormon couple and 2 extremely progressive liberals!
    I think I will leave the judging up to God. I’m interested in what is in people’s heart. If it is kindness and a willingness to accept other ideas without condemnation that is in their heart, then we can find a way to get along. God will know what’s what and who is who when we stand before Him.

    Exactly. Trial by 12 citizens. He has the right to that. Then, let the punishment, if convicted, be what the law allows. It would be a hard jury to sit on. As a huge dog lover and someone with great friends in law enforcement who knows the pressures they and their families live with, it would be very painful. Especially if his regret is sincere. Just a sad, sad situation all the way around. But it obviously shows he does not have the judgement abilities necessary for the kinds of situations officers find themselves in.

    Excellent point! Monks should also be put in charge of fertilizing the land, they literally wrote the books on making land viable. Monks and the Israeli’s – they can grow anything.

    Soon all of America, not to mention his family and constituents will find out what kind of a man he really is. Will he honor his obligation? It would seem that becoming suddenly “unavailable” is a pretty clear indicator. I will, however, reserve judgement until he speaks/pays up. He still has time to save his honor, such as it is. So Rep. Holmes, are you a man of your word or not?

    Unfortunately, the young criminology majors have been raised in an atmosphere where merely pointing their finger or chewing a PB&J sammy gets you suspended. They have been programmed to fear and loath guns. You put it perfectly, they are already lost in the matrix by the time they exit college.

    I generally like his articles, but his typos are annoying. Oliver please have someone proof your work before it is posted. Thank you.

    Don’t you just love the doctors totally informed answer?
    Very logical question. Answer: Just take it, it brings me revenue.

    Sorry, but the CDC, like the FDA lost my respect when I had Lyme and learned about their total acceptance of a test with a 50% false positive/false negative result. They do some good work around the world, but are in the pharmaceutical companies pocket, just like everyone else. I’ve had the flu 3x in last year and a half and none of the strains I had were covered by the flu shot (which I do not get), and all treated successfully with homeopathics. There are other, safer ways to deal with the flu.

    Ditto James, we would love to hear about your journey to make this amazing goal. I have a mid 20′s son who could use some encouragement. It breaks your heart as a parent to see a child struggle with weight loss issues. Many congratulations James for a job very well done!!

    Ok, this is one parent who you do not want her children marrying young (referencing the Phil Robertson article). She is teaching them is “let the government be responsible for you”, not “be responsible for yourselves”. I’ve never heard any doctor talk about how great it would be to have increased their paperwork avalanche by increasing Medicare and Medicaid. Having chronic illnesses, I’ve seen more doctors than the average person. They want to get AWAY from all the hassle of Medicare and Medicaid! Would love to see video of the doctors in their 50′s, 60′s and 70′s saying “yea, you know, it’s just gotten SO MUCH easier than it was 40 years ago dealing with insurance”. My doctors all bemoan the money they have to spend on personnel just to do insurance paperwork. I hear words like “nightmare”. What I see happening is my doctors moving away from accepting insurance at all. And it’s impossible to blame them. Guess this is as much as we can expect from a tv doc who starts her interview using “stud muffin” in the first 2 minutes. Per her flu shot cheerleading, last 3 times I’ve had the flu it was a strain NOT in the shot. No flu shots in 7 years, homeopathic only. Yes, trans fats are bad, but NOT my government’s business! Miss Jolie being put on a pedestal for butchering her body when she did NOT have cancer-her decision, but so much better to closely monitor via thermogram & treat & detect early via natural means. And I am a 2x breast cancer survivor, natural tr

    If young people have been raised in a Godly home and taught responsibility and honor and respect, it is a good thing for them to marry young. Although 15-16 maybe not, 18-20, yes. They learn to rely on each other – AND on their extended family. It does not work if you do not have solid, responsible extended family surrounding you. Waiting until 30 to marry? How much harder to remain a virgin until marriage when you wait that long. To label an entire group of young people as too stupid and irresponsible to make that important of a decision is wrong. Raised and guided in the correct way, young people of 18-20 can be totally responsible. That being said, we do see a great majority of young people today who are not ready for that responsibility. But that is a parental failure. We have made it such a stigma to rely on extended family for help now days as a young couple. Plus young couples are pushed by ads, etc. to feel they need to have a fully supplied home within 6 months of marriage when it should take 10-20 years to have that. It’s totally an individual situation whether or not young people are mature enough for marriage at 18-20. It would be a great thing for America if more parents raised their children to be that responsible at that age.

    Do people really go out in just blue jeans and no face covering at 20 below? I’m from GA so have no clue. Just know when I go outside with jeans on when it’s 15-20 above, my legs are cold! This video would have been much more interesting in slow motion, I kinda just saw steam. Happy New Years Eve Blaze readers! Stay safe tonight. I’ll be home watching The Twilight Zone marathon. Over 50 – that’s fun for me :)
